Mention was made on the results show about the number of hours Molly has put in. I can't say I like her particularly, but nobody can doubt the commitment she has shown. In the early series they did mention, at various stages of the series, how many hours training each contestant had put in. Maybe that was seen as counterproductive with people voting for those who had done most rather than the best dancers, I don't know.
I didn't watch the first few weeks, I never have done, but from what I've seen as least one of the poorer dancers ends up in the dance off each week and tends to get voted off. There was one exception to that a few weeks ago when Aston was voted off.
I don't think it's a bad thing for a 'better' dancer to be in the dance off as it stops them getting complacent.
